Sorry I don't own it! It sold a few years ago. It was the only one the Factory made, Very nice Gun!

Are the 45/70's rare? or did they make alot of those...?
What about a 200th year model #3 45/70? Value?

I have a 44 Mag. That I will be getting rid of here very shortly. It is a shooter grade, drilled and tapped reciever with a Redfield rear sight.
As for #3 45-70 Liberty, I'd say around $600-650

A local funshop has two #3's F/S, along with a half-dozen used #1's.

Both #3's have a Weaver-type scope base installed.

The #3's chamberings are .30-40 Krag, and .375 Winchester.

The #1's were in .338Win Mag, .300Win Mag, .45-70, .270, and a few others I can't recall, maybe a .243 Win & a .30-06.

(I know they regularly do telephone/internet sales)

Just looked at a 200th Yr #1 in .45-70 last night. Took home an OM flattop but put the #3 on lay-a-way. Just gotta find the correct butt plate for it now.

In Boise this past weekend, I picked up a perfect condition #3 in 44 Mag. It was on my short list of next purchases, so I was tickled to get it. I will post pics soon.
